FK Lowry has recently completed a 12 week contract at Suffolk Energy from Waste (EfW) facility for main contractor Lagan Construction Group.
Utilising 2No high torque CFA bored piling rigs FK Lowry completed a 900mm diameter, hard/firm secant wall with a retained height of 10 metres. In addition to this, 600No CFA bearing piles were installed up to 22 metres using augers ranging from 450 – 900mm diameter. Back analysis of preliminary pile testing helped to value engineer the scheme.
This was a logistically challenging project and it was critically important that the piling works were completed on time. Both FK Lowry and Lagan Construction Group personnel worked closely together ensuring this element of the works was successful.
